Two sisters set off on an epic journey across the Norwegian wilderness to find help for their father who has fallen into a mountain crack.
Calm Vega (9), her wild sister Billie (5) and their outdoorsy Daddy go for an overnight hike in the wilderness. The trip is all fun and games until Daddy falls into a mountain crack and hurts himself badly. Unable to move, he tells the girls to go and find help.
Together Vega and Billie set off on a mission across the wild Norwegian nature, and must brave wild animals, exposure, each other and their own fear. They meet a number of grown-ups, but none of them are able to help. In despair, they take matters into their own hands and decide to return to the crack and try to save Daddy all on their own.
